Americans cutting back on online activity over security and privacy fears Anonymous 05/13/2016 (Fri) 23:15:48 [Preview] No. 3 [Reply]
Nearly half of all Americans have not carried out a normal online task because of security and privacy fears, according to a new survey by the US government.

Forty-five per cent of the 41,000 households contacted said they had decided not to do online banking, or buy goods online, or post on social networks because they were worried about what might happen. Just under a third of them said they had stop several of those activities over the same fears.

The survey by the Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) makes for sober reading. It also makes a direct connection between people scaling back their online activities and the impact of a wave of recent security breaches of personal data.

An extraordinary 19 per cent of households - which extrapolates to nearly 24 million households across the US - have been personally affected by an online security breach in the past year.

That's perhaps not surprising given the big-name consumer companies impacted, including, to name just a few: Target, Home Depot, Verizon, Wendy's and Kiddicare - the last two reported just this week.

Those that have been the victim of a data breach are significantly more likely to scale back their online activities, the survey found: on average nine per cent.
It gets worse

The data also reveals a sad truth: the more you do online, the more likely you are to have your information compromised.

Of households that reported only having one online device like a computer or laptop, "just" six per cent of them said they had been victim of a data breach. That percentage goes up almost linearly to an appalling 31 per cent of households with five or more online devices.

"Patrick Stewart Takes Down Donald Trump In Epic Tweet" Anonymous 05/16/2016 (Mon) 23:33:23 [Preview] No. 74 [Reply]
Posters Note: Yet no one noticed or gave a shit for several days.

Patrick Stewart summed up his thoughts about Donald Trump in just one tweet.

The English actor said he spotted a homeless man in New Orleans holding a sign asking for $1 in exchange for not voting for the presumptive Republican nominee in November.

So the “Star Trek“ and “X-Men“ star apparently stumped up $5, perhaps with the hope that quintupling his donation would somehow contribute more to The Donald’s downfall.

Stewart tweeted a photograph on Wednesday night. It’s now going viral.

“Made me forget the humidity for a moment. Worth 5 bucks,” he posted.

Stewart spotted the man about a week after he also aired his feelings about Trump to Vice.
“Well, of course, we had no idea that Dreadful Trump would be up to these antics that he is up to now,” he told the website. “And I call them ‘antics’ because how could they possibly be taken seriously.”

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

Cops suspect man arrested in woods with bunch of guns might be white supremacist Anonymous 05/17/2016 (Tue) 00:57:29 [Preview] No. 79 [Reply]
Police in Lacey, New Jersey, believe a man they arrested wearing combat gear and hiding in the woods with a cache of firearms may be a white supremacist.

Bruce J. Post III of Trenton (mugshot above) was found with another man by Sgt. Paul Sullivan, Jr., and senior officer Michael Eden about 100 yards away from an abandoned 2007 Hyundai Tucson that was pulled the side off the road in the Greenwood Forest Wildlife Management Area. The officers were acting as part of a multi-agency task force combing through the woods because of an increase in “trespassing by persons in off-road vehicles, fire hazards, and criminal activity” in the area.

After searching the scene, “the officers… discovered an AK-47, a Walther P38 9 mm handgun, eight 30-round high-capacity magazines and one 100-round drum magazine, and various forms of ammunition at the scene within the woods,” according to Lacey Police Chief David A. Paprota. The officers also found several tarps and shovels.

“One subject, identified as Bruce J. Post 3rd, was wearing combat gear and gave indications of possible white-supremacist involvement,” Paprota added.

Gee, I wonder what gave the police that impression?

Post was arrested and charged with “illegal possession of a weapon by a felon, illegal possession of a handgun, illegal possession of an assault weapon and two counts of illegal possession of prohibited magazines.” Charges against the second man, who has not been identified.

Post was previously tied to the 1995 murder of Andrew Whited, who was stabbed 29 times by his younger brother Joe, currently in prison for the crime. The brothers, and the murder, was profiled in an Investigation Discovery documentary “Evil Kin: Brothers in Arms.” The documentary reported Bruce was known to dress in a Nazi uniform and “goose-step around the neighborhood.”

“He definitely had some neo-Nazi leanings and wasn’t afraid to share them,” one interviewee recalled.

Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau owes parents everywhere an explanation Anonymous 05/14/2016 (Sat) 19:06:51 [Preview] No. 30 [Reply]
Looking after small kids is no easy feat. I know that all too well. And the moms in society - and let's be honest here, it's still usually the women who stay home - do a lot more work 9-5 than those of us who just sit at a desk all day. It's not all soap operas and bon-bons, that's for sure.

Screaming kids. Barfing kids. Diapers. Endless laundry. Dirty dishes. Heck, broken dishes. Cheerios spilled everywhere, if you're lucky. Soup spilled everywhere and in your hair on a bad day. Diapers again.
And do you get to rest while they're napping? Hell no. You've got an hour to clean up to prepare for the next round.

But I'm going to bet that this is not the life Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, the prime minister's wife, has to manage. Yet she still had the nerve to tell French newspaper Le Soleil that life's tough. "I have three children at home and a husband who is prime minister. I need help. I need a team to help me serve people."

She's feeling overwhelmed. There are so many requests on her plate and she's having trouble. And the PMO confirms they're working at getting her an extra staff member. It's not yet close to the extravagance of Evita or Imelda Marcos, but you've still got to wonder what was going through her head when she said these entitled words.

It's no doubt a challenge with three kids - ages two, seven and eight - at Rideau Cottage, where the Trudeaus are living until 24 Sussex Dr. is fixed up. It doesn't matter who you are or how much your spouse earns ($330,000 in this case, with free rent).

But let's not kid ourselves here. It's sure easier when you've got money and a big house. And also when you've got help. Gregoire-Trudeau has two nannies, a personal assistant, and the bigger kids are school-aged and old enough to help with the toddler when they're home.
NDP MP Niki Ashton summed up the situation well, telling media: "hearing statements like that certainly doesn't speak to the reality that Canadian women face and the kind of struggles that, you know, that they're undertaking day in, day out."

Exactly. Single moms. Minimum-wage earners.

Gregoire-Trudeau no doubt does receive more requests to help charities and initiatives than she can handle. And I'm sure she genuinely wants to use her celebrity to help others as much as she can.

fuck canada
Women want to get teaching and nursing positions when they are more stressful and less rewarding forms of motherly activities.
She probably has a hard time being a mother because she's really just a dude crossdressing (like micheal obama) and thought it would be all barebacking and blowjobs.
I cannot believe the moral apathy of this country; Micheal Moore should move here when Trump gets in.
We somehow take pride in 'live for the moment' as if it were a virtue and philosophy and morals are 'overthinking things dude'.
We sold off our self determination and heritage with the first trudeau, now we are administering the final blow for the sake of virtue signaling "I'll vote anything but harper" and weed lmao.
A vast majority of Canadians including white people are first or second generation, we already died in the 60s.
We are so detatched from anything godly, even those of us that can see what this nation is have no incentive to serve it; what good is conservatism when there is nothing to fall back on?
Our population is tiny which makes us prone to quick changes; every year of disgenic breeding in the USA here counts as 10 (thank jesus christ our lord and saviour we don't border mexico).
Canadians attack anything proud or patriotic, the running joke here is that 'murricans are ignorant and stupid without any self awareness of the irony; here pride means sodomy and public displays of fetishism.
We're like sweden but without a long history, our identity is formed on memes like multi-culti, maple syrup, beavers, hating french canadians, and coffee chains.
our youth dreams of going to university on trust-fund money, smoking pot and drinking for four years, graduating, getting some magical government job, buying a house in the suburbs, then spending their time watching tv and having someone else raise their kids.
social justice has been ingrained and incentivized in nearly all institutions from church, schools, work, business.
Trudeau is an embarrassment; I've seen gore and extremely shocking videos, but never have I been so hesitant to 'click play' when he is the subject.
we are the meme country, and its 2016.

Hello fellow Canadian! Northern Ontario here (Not that Southern Ontario California wannabe trashhole). Glad to see some redpilled Canadian's here. It's people like you that keep me sane. I see crazy liberals left, right, and center all the time it's refreshing to hear from other Canadian's that haven't gone full retard.

In addition to Trudeau, a number of provinces have terrible premiers. Here in Ontario we have Kathleen "Nobody wins with" Wynne. Electricity has skyrocketed, taxes has ballooned, and if you live anywhere outside of Southern Ontario the government ignores you and passes laws that negatively impact you.

Alberta has NOTley. She does NOT do a damn thing. She's assisted Trudeau in crashing the oil industry, she reduced the number of forest fire figheters because numbers were down last year, weeks before Fort McMurry went up in flames.

Hell when I think about it, Canada is literally right now burning to the ground.

We are fucked.

canadian here, got evac'd from fort mac. shit was crazy, orderly, but crazy. people puking on the side of the road, fire on the right, left sides, lost my house... had the best ciggie of my life down by the walmart while the flames came over the hill and into my neighborhood...

government is cancerous. it does not produce. it steals. the only functions of government should be borders, individual rights, police, security, prisons, ambulance, intellectual property. everything else is a drain on everyone. buisinesses produce, but governments grow larger, make production ever more tedious, spread fud, steal and _spend_, and never downsize.

people do not want to lower their standards of living and thus things never get any better, so canada doesn't produce jack shit except weed, some token oil, coal, and wood.

rich chinese are already buying everything, the us is going down. china and industrial nations will be #1. our supply of cheap goods to support our fat asses working at starbucks or another service job wont last forever. a huge correction will come when the us dollar tanks and canada gets dragged down with it.

it's not only trudeau. its every politician before his faggot ass trying to micromanage an economy and the ignorant voters who still cling falsely to the hope that there exists something for nothing.

thank government group think camps, socialized day-care education... there are countries that out produce us in every way, to the quality of kids, # of jobs, opportunity, economic freedom. this is the land of the enslaved who sit idly away, "baking from scratch!", smoking weed, kayaking, while complaining about carbon emissions while drinking out of a plastic bottle.

a nightmare of bureacratic waste and idle living with no hard labour to back it up.

Phantom Jobs: Jobs that are advertised, but do not actually exis Anonymous 05/14/2016 (Sat) 03:27:33 [Preview] No. 18 [Reply]
> Yikes! Splat! Plop! Oy vey!

> Job growth fell hard in April as the government’s employment numbers confirmed the disappointing reality already self-evident on nearly every Main Street across the US.

> The economy was a loser this spring, and the statistical proof of this is catching up with reality.

> The Labor Department on Friday announced that only 160,000 jobs were created last month. Put another way, most economists think that is barely enough to absorb even the people looking to enter the job market for the first time, much less give work to the 7.9 million Americans looking for a job.

> April’s results were lower than the 208,000 jobs created in March, which was lower than the 233,000 jobs created in February.

> You get the trend, here?

> But as dispiriting as the 160,000 total is, there’s even, perhaps, a bigger problem — one that led me to believe this week that April jobs growth would exceed Wall Street’s forecast of 200,000.

> That bigger problem is this: included in the 160,000 figure are 233,000 phantom jobs that Labor added to the mix.

> The government each month regularly adds or subtracts phantom jobs, those it believes were created or destroyed — but can’t prove.

Can emojis help eliminate gender inequity? Google wants to try Anonymous 05/16/2016 (Mon) 13:03:21 [Preview] No. 57 [Reply]
Google has decided to play the "woman card" with a proposal for new emojis aimed at "reducing gender inequality."
But can cute pictures in text messages really be expected to boost women's wages or bring an end to mansplaining?

Earlier this week, Google suggested a new set of emojis representing professional women to the Unicode Consortium, the body that oversees international standards for computer language including emojis — those tiny images you can add in messages sent via text and messaging apps, meant to convey ideas or emotions.

Mark Zuckerberg is a hypocrite - Facebook has destroyed the open web Anonymous 05/14/2016 (Sat) 03:33:02 [Preview] No. 19 [Reply]
Mark Zuckerberg appeared presidential last month. In a speech he gave at an annual Facebook event, he said travelling around the world has worried him: "I am starting to see people and nations turning inward — against this idea of a connected world and a global community."

He showed dismay for "fearful voices calling for building walls and distancing people they label as 'others.'" Then, like a powerful world leader, he called on everyone: "Instead of building walls, we can help people build bridges. And instead of dividing people, we can help bring people together."

That is all quite ironic to me, and I'll tell you why. In 2014, I was pardoned and released from a prison in Tehran where I spent six years over my web activism. Before I was imprisoned in 2008, all the hype and rage on the internet was found on blogs.

Blogs were the best thing that had ever happened on the internet. They democratised writing and publishing – at least in many parts of the world. They gave a voice to many silenced groups and minorities. They connected friends, families, communities, and nations around the world. They encouraged discussions and debates.

All that was made possible because of a brilliant and powerful, but simple and modest innovation: hyperlinks. Those underlined, blue bits of text that made your cursor look like a hand with a outstretched pointed finger, and took you to outside sources and material on the web. The very fact that in 2016, one needs to explain to a new generation what hyperlinks (or simply links) were is already sad enough. But acknowledging that links are now practically dead is heart-breaking to anyone who remembers those times.

The World Wide Web was founded on the links, and without links, there won't be a web. Without links the experience of being on the internet will become one of a centralised, linear, passive, inward-looking and homogeneous kind. This is happening already, and despite Zuckerberg's sermon, it is largely Facebook and Instagram who are to be blame for the demise of links, and thereby the death of the open web and all its potentials for a more peaceful world.

Mark Zuckerberg killed links (and the web) because he has created a space that is more like the future of television rather than the internet. Unlike what he preaches, Facebook has divided us into small personal bubbles of comfort. We don't need to do anything, but to swipe with our thumbs (soon even that wouldn't be necessary with eyeball detection systems).

Hidden Microphones Exposed As Part of Government Surveillance Program In The Bay Area Anonymous 05/14/2016 (Sat) 21:25:03 [Preview] No. 31 [Reply]
OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Hidden microphones that are part of a clandestine government surveillance program that has been operating around the Bay Area has been exposed.
Imagine standing at a bus stop, talking to your friend and having your conversation recorded without you knowing. It happens all the time, and the FBI doesn’t even need a warrant to do it.

Federal agents are planting microphones to secretly record conversations.

Jeff Harp, a KPIX 5 security analyst and former FBI special agent said, “They put microphones under rocks, they put microphones in trees, they plant microphones in equipment. I mean, there’s microphones that are planted in places that people don’t think about, because that’s the intent!”

FBI agents hid microphones inside light fixtures and at a bus stop outside the Oakland Courthouse without a warrant to record conversations, between March 2010 and January 2011.

Federal authorities are trying to prove real estate investors in San Mateo and Alameda counties are guilty of bid rigging and fraud and used these recordings as evidence.

Harp said, “An agent can’t just go out and grab a recording device and plant it somewhere without authorization from a supervisor or special agent in charge.”

The lawyer for one of the accused real estate investors who will ask the judge to throw out the recordings, told KPIX 5 News that, “Speaking in a public place does not mean that the individual has no reasonable expectation of privacy…private communication in a public place qualifies as a protected ‘oral communication’… and therefore may not be intercepted without judicial authorization.”

Harp says that if you’re going to conduct criminal activity, do it in the privacy of your own home. He says that was the original intention of the Fourth Amendment, but it’s up to the judge to interpret it.
